This shot was taken on my latest London day trip, yesterday 19th May. The location is 1 London Bridge, offices built in 1986. I have seen a few shots of this viewpoint from my contacts and I wanted my own view. The pillar supports part of the structure overhanging the South Bank Thames Path next to London Bridge.
On this trip my pictures did a lot of looking up especially useful this time of year with the City filling up with tourists from home and worldwide.
The camera used was a Sony A700 with a Sigma 10-20mm wide angle lens at 10mm taken handheld

This is my first proper try at doing a long exposure for over two minutes as I am just starting to get into day time long exposures. Please let me know if you have any suggestions of how this can be improved.
Hyde Park is one of the largest parks in central London, England and one of the Royal Parks of London, famous for its Speakers' Corner.
The park is divided in two by the Serpentine. The park is continuous with Kensington Gardens; although often still assumed to be part of Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens has been technically separate since 1728, when Queen Caroline made a division between the two. Hyde Park is 142 hectares and Kensington Gardens is 111 hectares , giving an overall area of 253 hectares, making the combined area larger than the Principality of Monaco (196 hectares), but smaller than New York City's Central Park (341 hectares).
The subway system (called tube) in London is also absolutely fascinating. It was the first subway worldwide. During rush hour, the tube is unbelievable crowded. But it works - it works perfectly.
Another shot from my late night London series.
Richmond Park, London
I enjoyed Richmond Park so much, it was the kind of countryside I grew up in, (I didn't grow up in Wales, I'm English and come from Hertfordshire), and Autumn was just lovely there. I miss that.

Palace of Westminster, London
The new parliament was built in a neo-gothic style. Although Barry was the chief architect of the palace, he turned to Augustus Pugin for the design of the clock tower, which resembles earlier Pugin designs, including one for Scarisbrick Hall in Lancashire. The design for the tower was Pugin's last design before his final descent into madness and death, and Pugin himself wrote, at the time of Barry's last visit to him to collect the drawings: "I never worked so hard in my life for Mr Barry for tomorrow I render all the designs for finishing his bell tower & it is beautiful."
El nuevo Parlamento fue construido en estilo neogótico. Aunque Barry era el arquitecto jefe del Palacio, encargó a Augustus Pugin el diseño de la Torre del Reloj, que recuerda a otros diseños de Pugin, incluyendo uno para Scarisbrick Hall. El diseño de la Torre del Reloj fue el último de Pugin antes de caer en la depresión y la locura, y cuando Barry le visitó por última vez para recoger sus diseños, Pugin escribió: «Nunca en mi vida había trabajado tan duro para el señor Barry, mañana entregaré los diseños para terminar su campanario y es magnífico»
